...So there's this judge sitting there sitting in a cape like fucking batman with this really rather far out looking hat....

You mean a wig?

No man, this was more like a long white hat.

We're having a Voodoo Chilli party this weekend... Three classic films and a bloody hot chilli - you're all invited if you can answer the following simple questions:

Who dresses like an Australian's Nightmare?
Who works four floors up on the Charing Cross Road?
What did they eat when there was no Crawdad?

What are the answers, which films are they, and (most important) what would the questions be for your party?

Four floors up -- that was Withnail's Uncle Monty's agent way-back-when, a "nasty little Israelite" who never had any jobs for Monty.

Does he favour grafitti as a communication medium?

I got the crawdad one right away: "One time I tried to make me some crawdad, so I threw it in the pot, only there was no water in the pot, see? It was just like making popcorn."

1) What does "Waponi Woo" mean?
2) Who drives a Jaguar hearse?
3) Don't do what to another man's rhubarb?
